The continued attacks on civilians in Darfur are a clear violation of the ceasefire agreement, United Nations Security Council resolutions and international humanitarian law protecting civilians. SOAT calls on the government of Sudan (GoS) to respect its obligations under the Abuja Protocols, which under Article 2 (‘Protection of Civilians’) of the humanitarian accords require all parties to the agreement to “Take all steps required to prevent attacks, threats, intimidations and any other form of violence against civilians.” Furthermore, under Article 5 (Security Protocols) the GoS is obliged to “expeditiously implement its stated commitment to neutralize and disarm the Janjaweed/armed militias”.

SOAT condemns the continued violations of the ceasefire agreement and all attacks on civilians. In light of the serious and ongoing nature of attacks on civilians by both militias and government forces, SOAT strongly urges the international community and the GOS to:

Immediately investigate the attack on Toray village

Immediately cease attacks on civilians and adhere to it commitments under the ceasefire agreement

Ensure the protection of all civilians, including displaced persons

Disarm the Janjaweed militias immediately and all outlaws operating in the Darfur region

Facilitate the immediate delivery of emergency supplies such as food and medicine to the severely affected population in Toray village

Guarantee respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms throughout the country in accordance with national laws and international human rights standards.
